Lady in Green . . .

Good Evening All!

QUICKLY I must get this card posted ... only an hour left to enter the Cheery Lynn Designs 'Doilies' challenge!  Yikes!  I thought I had another day!  Silly me!

Why is it when you're in a hurry nothing goes right!
I will probably replace these photos later ... the coloring is OFF!  
For some reason my camera wanted to put a PINK haze around my card.  
The GREEN color on this lovely lady by Rick St. Dennis is actually a KELLY GREEN!
As is the background paper.  
The TAN paper sponged with TH Vintage Photo ink also looks orange!
Still a pretty card but wish the colors were closer to real!

This is a little closer to the true color ...
Still has a pink haze but not as strong as before. 

My flower is the CLD - Shasta Daisy strip.  It's white with a SU More Mustard sponged center.
I'll be back in a bit with more details and hopefully better photos!
Till then ... have a nice evening!
Snow (again! really!) here in Ohio!  Thought we were done with the white stuff!
